Light management strategies can increase the efficiency of perovskite single-junction and tandem solar cells. In this study, we present perovskite solar cells deposited on different nanotextures by spin-coating. A morphological and optoelectronic analysis demonstrates a high quality of the perovskite absorber, regardless of the substrate. Using both, a nanotexture and a sodium fluoride antireflective coating, enables us to improve the power conversion efficiency by 1.0%abs to 19.7%, when compared to its planar reference. A characterisation of the optical performance of nanotextured perovskite solar cells and rigorous optical simulations reveal that the gain in efficiency can be largely attributed to reduced reflection losses and therefore increased absorption in the perovskite. Our nanotextured perovskite solar cells reach 93.6% of the attainable current density, marking the highest reported value for perovskite single junctions and approaching those of established photovoltaic technologies. Our results demonstrate that nanotextures can be applied to solution-processed perovskite solar cells and pave the way to increased power conversion efficiencies by light management not only in perovskite single-junction but also perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells.
